We recommend that you have Enform activated at your Lexus dealership.
Your sales consultant will help you through the process and demonstrate the functionality of Enform so that you get the most out of it from the moment you drive out of the dealership.
If, for whatever reason, the dealership doesn't activate Enform for you, you can do it yourself at home via the Lexus Owners Portal on lexus.com.au or via your compatible smartphone.
Enform will work with compatible Apple iPhone and Google Android platform smartphones only. Apple iPhone and Google Android platform smartphones form a large percentage of the smartphone market in Australia, ensuring most customers will be able to use the Enform system.

It will not work with Blackberry or some Windows phones (certain Nokia models) at this stage. Lexus retains the right to amend the list of compatible phones from time to time.

Q: How do I know that Enform is giving me the right information? What is the source of the information for Local Search, Weather, Fuel Finder and Destination Download/Assist

Fuel Finder - Motormouth
Destination Download/Assist - Google
Data usage will vary depending on each app and how often you use it.
Many of the apps will both upload and download small 'packets' of information. These 'packets' are of a comparable size to a regular SMS message (i.e. very small) and will therefore have minimal impact on your data charges unless you use the apps constantly or have a very small data plan.
We suggest you check with your service provider to understand the limits of your purchased data plan. Some smartphones, like iPhone, have the ability to track how much cellular data is used. Refer to your smartphone's owner's manual for details.
